Pony Party (25 photos)
We recently hosted our daughter 3rd birthday in our little backyard. What little girl doesn’t love ponies so this was her theme for this year’s get together; it also happened to be the same day as the Kentucky Derby.
The afternoon started with pony rides (they brought a donkey and some bunnies too!), followed by our annual duck race at the little lake near our house. After that a Pony Fairy hide some tiny horses in our backyard for all the kids to find. All the kids received a stick pony that my mom and I spent several hours making leading up to the party, we were very happy with how they turned out and the kiddos seemed to love them and will now have a handmade toy to bring home and hopefully play with for many years.
Dinner consisted of barbecue that included, potatoes salad, coleslaw, corn muffins, watermelon, sausage and a bourbon based pork loin for the adults in honor of the Kentucky Derby. We also drew numbers to cheer for the race and the winner received a trophy and a lottery ticket.
The make your own “Trail Mix” station was a hit, along with the lemonade stand and our dessert bar consisted of a pink raspberry cake with pink buttercream icing; chocolate, lemon and vanilla cupcakes, carrot cake in a jar, apple pie pops and some pony sugar cookies sporting a number 3 saddle.
